Carma Bare

June 2, 1942 — October 12, 2018

On October 12th, 2018, Heaven welcomed Carma Anderson Bare, loving wife of Rance
Bare. Carma, the third of five children, was born in Santa Monica California to Ray L
and Geneve Anderson. Carma moved to Idaho Falls at age seven, graduating from
Bonneville High School in 1961. She married Rance on June 24, 1961 and was the
loving mother of four children. She is survived by Todd Bare (Lori Bare), Murfreesboro,
TN; Michelle Williams (Lawrence Williams), Idaho Falls, ID; Hydie Miller (Toni Miller) San
Diego, CA; Robin Barnum (Tim Barnum) McGrath, AK. She is also survived by two older
brothers, Lenis and Lyle; two younger sisters, Martha and Sue; 14 grandchildren and
nine great grandchildren. In the early years of her marriage she was a dedicated home maker and spent her free
time developing her artistic talents. Such skills included tole and oil painting, which led
to her love of creating porcelain dolls and antiquing. She loved to travel and was able to
experience most of the United States throughout her life. She earned her PHT degree in
1963 from Utah State University while supporting her husband's educational endeavors.
Later in life she held a number of jobs including working as a lab technician for the
Idaho Crop Improvement Association's potato lab. As an active member of the Church of the Nazarene she contributed to various
ministries including children, teen, missions to the Navajo Nation, and most notably an
award winning traveling puppet outreach team. In 2002 she suffered a debilitating stroke which limited her ability to carry on with some
of the hobbies that she loved. Despite this, she did not let her physical condition
interfere with her unique sense of whit and humor. She remained active and enjoyed
visiting her children and grandchildren throughout the country until 2012 when her
health deteriorated. On September 23, 2018 she suffered a second major stroke of which she was not able
to recover. On October 5th she returned home under the watchful care of One Source
Hospice, whom we give our utmost gratitude. On October 12th, 2018 Carma Bare
passed away peacefully at home with her loving family by her side. She is preceded in death by her grandchild Cody Barnum, her parents Ray L and
Geneve Anderson, and in-laws Harper and June Bare. Her family would like to give special thanks to Stephanie Kearney for her loving care
and friendship over the past six years as her home health nurse. Special thanks also go
to TJ and Cara for their various physical therapy efforts over the years.
